We are starting a Great Canadian Mail Race in our classroom on Monday. It should be a good time, as it makes writing letters fun (when did letter writing STOP being fun???), reinforces all the map skills we built earlier in the year during Social Studies, and brings awareness to the lost art of posting letters to friends.
It is my hope that your student shares their letter writing experiences with you at home and wishes to write members of your family or friends who live outside of our community. Perhaps the next time you run into the Post Office, you will wait in that short little line and pick up a few extra stamps for your student to post a few letters of their own?
